Pyongyang -

Speculation is growing that the wife of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-Un has had a baby, continuing the dynasty into a fourth generation.

Photographs on North Korean TV show Ri Sol-Ju in a neatly-fitting skirt suit in contrast to loose clothing she was seen wearing in mid-December which suggested she was pregnant.

Adding to the conjecture that Ri, who is thought to be aged between 25 and 28, has given birth is her slimmed-down appearance at an official event, which included an all-woman band singing the Johnny Mathis Christmas favourite When a Child is Born.

Kim Jong-Un, who is believed to be 29, became leader of the secretive Stalinist state following the death of his father, Kim Jong-Il, who had succeeded his own father, “Great Leader” Kim Il-Sung. - Daily Mail
